Well, now what has deviated the attention of the netizens is the film's US (United States) box office collection. Surprised? So were we, when we came across reports about Vakeel Saab incurring loss in the region. Reportedly, the film has not been able to garner much attention of the audience owing to the surge in the COVID-19 cases in the US, and restrictions in seating capacity in theatres and multiplexes. A few reports also suggest that because the film is the remake of the Bollywood film Pink which already received huge appreciation there, many chose to skip watching Vakeel Saab amid the pandemic.

However, it is said that the weekend collection, which was expected to be mammoth saw a steep decline, upsetting many. Though there is no official confirmation regarding the US box office collection, we will have to wait and watch to know the truth behind the ongoing buzz.
